Am I correct in saying that Tohatsu are continuing to make the ELPTO but they cannot be imported into the EU.
Spare parts for these motors CAN and are still legally imported into the EU, there is no legislation currently being considered to stop this that I know of....Rember if you have all the spare parts, you could in theroy still make the engine!!
These two stroke engines can also STILL be legally imported into the EU for commercial and motor sport use, ie Zapcats, fishermen etc.
There are loads of places to get them serviced,
